Please keep posts on list.

I do not think it will, I think the username/password will get expanded
to 'test%user%password' and it will be read as the user test with a
password of user%password or just user.
I would never use '%' in a username, samba & windows both use it as a
delimiter, but if you must use it, then this *may* work:
net ads join -U test\%user%password
As long as everything else is set up correctly, the machine should get
joined to the AD domain, if it isn't set up correctly, you shouldn't be
trying to join the domain. If this doesn't work, you may have to accept
you cannot use '%' in a username.
